Dive trip to Ibiza
We are arranging a dive trip to Ibiza for May of this year as a little warm-up for the dive season. Ibiza is one of those “hardly known” gems in the scuba diving world with some great diving just over a couple of hours flight from the UK. It also boasts the largest wreck in the Mediterranean called the Dom Pedro, a giant container ship which is just outside the port of Ibiza town along with some lovely reefs and swim-throughs. To top it all off, Ibiza some the best fish life I have seen in the Mediterranean.
We will be staying in Es Cana, a town to the north of Ibiza so we are far enough away from the party places so that we won’t be kept up to all hours but there is still a number of bars and restaurants in walking distance to have s good time in the evenings. Es Cana is also close to the dive centre which is situated on a lovely golden sand beach with a couple of cafes nearby for Lunch on your breaks between diving.
The scuba diving in Ibiza is, as I mentioned, some of the best all-round scuba diving in the Med, with great wrecks and reefs but the thing I most enjoy about scuba diving in Ibiza is the amount and size of the fish. As we all know the biggest problem with scuba diving in the Mediterranean is the overfishing, but this hasn’t happened around Ibiza so whenever I have been there before I have always found huge numbers of fish including large fish which is so rare in the Mediterranean these days. Plus, if you needed another reason to join us on this trip, the government there introduced marine reserves around the Island so the health and diversity in the waters around Ibiza has improved from what was already good levels.
The Dive clubs trip is being arranged by Stuart so if you would like to book on the dive trip or to find out more details about scuba diving in Ibiza please contact Stuart on Stuart@underwateradventures.co.uk
The plan for the dive trip is to Fly out of Stansted airport on the evening of the 9th May and fly home again on the evening of the 16th May giving everyone plenty of time to explore the amazing underwater world that can be found just offshore of Ibiza.
The package includes all transfers, accommodation and a 10 boat dive pack with tanks and weights all for only £619 per person, plus flights. We will also have a rest day in the middle of the dive trip so you can explore the Island if you like or just book a couple of extra dives with Punta dive, the dive company we will be scuba diving with. There will also be an option for a night dive or two if you like so you can check out the Ibiza nightlife, under the water as well as on top of it.
We will just need a £100 deposit to book your place and we suggest you book your flights as soon as possible as the longer you leave it the more they will cost.
This is such a great deal to do some amazing scuba diving on an Island not normally known for scuba diving but has some really cool treasures hidden just under the surface and this trip will give you a chance to see a side of Ibiza very few scuba divers get to see.
here are a few videos I've found on Youtube to give you an idea of what the diving is like starting with my personal favorite, the lighthouse reef
